Radiohead’s New “Reckoner” Remix Is Up To You

But not before getting a spin from the pros. In announcing another “Nude”-styled project, Thom writes:

There’s a Remix site going up tomorrow for Reckoner here>>
To start things off we asked James Holden and Diplo to do their versions.
Now the elements are already being passed around to other artists..
The elements of the song are soon going to be made available to you if you wanna have a go..
If it’s anything like the Nude remix site it could get fairly nuts.
We’re off to Japan at the weekend.

Off to Japan, to finish up that album tour. The song stems are available and ready for your reworkings, but first have a listen to these two for inspiration:

Radiohead – “Reckoner (Diplo Remix)” (MP3)
Radiohead – “Reckoner (Holden Remix)” (MP3)

Hear more at radioheadremix.com. The band posted some further details on the project:

To coincide with asking radio stations to think about playing Reckoner we are breaking up the tune into pieces for you to remix.

After the insane response we got from the Nude remix stems and the site that was dedicated to your remixes…

Unique visitors: 6,193,776, Page Views: 29,090,134, Hits: 58,340,512, Bandwidth: 10.666 Terabytes, Number of mixes: 2,252, Number of votes: 461,090, Number of track listens: 1,745,304

…we thought it only fair to do the same with a tune that at least is in 4/4. You can get the stems (the different instruments/elements) from here.

Sample, cut, take the sounds, whatever. Play it in a club. Or your room. Then if you want you can upload your finished mixes to www.radioheadremix.com and be judged by everyone else. YOu can create a widget allowing votes from your own site, Facebook or MySpace to be sent through too.

Have fun.

Pretty forthcoming with those “Nude” download activity stats considering the relatively tight lips on the numbers for that little album release experiment that shook the music business, no? Anyway like they say, don’t look a gift track stem in the mouth. Download ‘em at iTunes. Billboard Top 40, here we come.
